June 5, 2011 - PRLog -- This week, Outsource Ten Managing Director, Brett Heyes focusses on goals and goal setting. For all premiership football teams, the end of the premiership season means a time to reflect on achievements. Teams like Manchester United will be assessing their achievements as well as planning next year’s campaign. Outsource ten are no different when it comes to setting goals.
“My mentality towards setting goals has changed since starting up my own company” says Brett. “Before I heard the story in today’s release I fell into the ’no goals’ category which for a long time held me back from any sort of success” he adds.
From the book ‘What they don’t teach you at Harvard Business School’ by Mark McCormack:

In the book Mark McCormack tells a study conducted on students in the 1979 Harvard MBA program. In that year, the students were asked a simple question

"Have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?"

Only three percent of the graduates had written goals and plans; 13 percent had goals, but they were not in writing; and a whopping 84 percent had no specific goals at all.
Ten years later, the members of the class were interviewed again, and the findings, while somewhat predictable, were nonetheless astonishing.

The 13 percent of the class who had goals were earning, on average, twice as much as the 84 percent who had no goals at all. The most interesting statistic was that three percent who had clear, written goals, were earning on average ten times as much as the other 97 percent put together.

In spite of such proof of success, most people don't have clear, measurable, time-bounded goals that they work toward.

In the bestseller "Goals!", Brian Tracy teaches you how to identify in the clearest terms the things you want out of life, then how to make the plan to help you achieve those things.

Brian Tracy says there are four reasons why people don't set goals:

They don't realize about the importance of goals. If the people with whom you spend the most time — family, friends, colleagues, and so forth — are not clear and committed to goals, there is a chance that you will not be, either.
They don't know how to set goals. Some set goals that are too general. These are, in reality, fantasies common to everyone. Goals, on the other hand, are clear, written, specific, and measurable.
They fear failure. Failure hurts, but it is often necessary to experience failure to achieve the greatest success. Do not unconsciously sabotage yourself by not setting any goals in which you might fail.
They fear rejection. People are often afraid that if they are unsuccessful at achieving a goal, others will be critical of them. This is remedied by keeping your goals to yourself at the outset; let others see your results and achievements once you've accomplished your goals.

“My advise to anyone who is serious about success is this: Make a habit of daily goal setting and achieving, for the rest of your life. Focus on the things you want, rather than the things you don't want. Resolve to be a goal-seeking organism, moving stubbornly toward the things that are important to you” ends Brett

It seems that summer is always a good time for self evaluation. For some people goals will be set with plans, for others their goals will only be dreams and for the majority their only goal will be to get onto a beech somewhere and enjoy the holiday. Their seems to be no right or wrong, just whats right for individuals.
